International Planetary Data Alliance Site Policy and Component Orchestration

Project description

This is the “policy” product for the Plone-based site of the International Planetary Data Alliance (IPDA). Its job is to orchestrate the dependencies and configure them in order to transform an ordinary Plone site into the IPDA site.

It was developed by the Planetary Data System (PDS).


Use Buildout with the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe.

  • Add ipdasite.policy to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

    eggs =
  • Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

    $ ./bin/buildout

That’s it.
